|Official name||Würzburg train attack|
|Story Perp/s||Riaz Khan Ahmadzai|
a 17-year-old asylum seeker injured four people, two critically, with a knife and hatchet on a train near Würzburg in Germany. A fifth person was injured outside. The state office of criminal investigations called it a terrorist attack with an Islamist religious motive.
The attack happened around 21:00 CEST on a train traveling on the line between Treuchtlingen and Würzburg. The victims in the train (a husband, wife, their daughter and her boyfriend) were from Hong Kong, and the fifth victim, attacked outside the train, was a local woman. Fourteen witnesses were treated for shock. The attacker tried to flee and was shot dead by Special Deployment Commandos after they confronted him and he tried to attack them with the hatchet.
German authorities later discovered evidence showing that the perpetrator, identified as Riaz Khan Ahmadzai, was in contact with a suspected Islamic State member in Saudi Arabia and had originally been asked to drive a car into a crowd of people. Ahmadzai declined this suggestion as he was not able to drive the car. Instead, he told his contact that he would plan and carry out a train attack.
